The Fraser-Hickson Institute Library Collection

The Fraser Institute, established by the will of Hugh Fraser, was incorporated by an Act of Parliament on December 24, 1870. It opened in 1885 with its primary purpose as a library, “open to all honest and respectable persons whomever of every rank in life without distinction…for the diffusion of useful knowledge by affording free access to all desiring it to books, to scientific objects and to works of art.” (Statutes of the Province of Quebec, 1870). Prime Minister John Abbott served as the Institute’s first Governor.

After J.W.A. Hickson’s generous bequest in 1956, the Fraser Institute became known as the Fraser-Hickson Institute.

The Institute currently houses over 130,000 items in French and English including extensive antiquarian holdings comprised in part of the collections of several older libraries such as the Institut Canadien, the Mercantile Library Association, and the Montreal Book Club which closed down at the end of the nineteenth century. These are in the process of being digitized for Internet Archive.

For further information and a description of holdings please consult the Institute website at fraserhickson.ca
